Imagine the scene: a sports bar somewhere outside of Louisville. NCAA tournament games are on every screen.

At the bar sit two drinkers, one with a Kentucky hat on and one wearing Louisville’s. They’re taunting each other good naturedly. The Louisville guy mocks John Calipari’s hair. The Kentucky guy makes a crack about escorts wearing Adidas sneakers.

They both laugh good naturedly.

On the TV a new game is starting and the intro features Christian Laettner’s legendary 1992 shot against Kentucky.

Buddy, says the Kentucky fan. “**** Laettner,”

“**** Zion,” the Louisville fan replies. They raise a glass to each other and watch in silence as the game tips off.
